by Gartner as an example of supply chain innovation.

For the sixth straight year, Mercy and its supply chain company ROi (Resource Optimization & Innovation) have landed among Gartner’s top 10 global supply chains in health care. 

Gartner’s list highlights innovation and adaptation when it comes to improving the quality of health care; the 2014 rankings put Mercy sixth, ahead of organizations like Johnson & Johnson (7th), Kaiser Foundation Hospitals (14) and Cleveland Clinic (16).

“It’s humbling to know that Gartner and our industry peers continue to take notice of the incredible dedication of the co-workers across Mercy and ROi who help us remain a leader in supply chain,” said Gene Kirtser, president and CEO, ROi.

This year, Mercy and ROi received the highest Gartner analyst ranking given to a provider. The report notes, “Mercy is relentless in its improvements each year … [and] continues to demonstrate what great talent can do. Mercy continues to deliver innovation in how it thinks about data standards and analytics in the business of patient care.”

Mercy and ROi were recognized by Gartner earlier this year as the inaugural health care provider recipient of Gartner’s Supply Chainnovator Award for pioneering a new spine implant distribution model in health care.
